An engagement session is a great way to get to know a couple and for them to get to know us. What makes it more fun is having an engagement session for the whole family. This couple has two children, we encourage including them in a few photos. Of course, the whole session won’t have them but why not take a family photo. Depending on the children’s ages it might be appropriate to bring a helper to take the kids while we finish up the session. This session was at the Botanical Garden, the children were doing so well they just stayed with us the whole time. During some of the photos they even helped mom and dad laugh a bit. Then they laughed when we did some kissing photo – eww kissing! The weather has been up and down lately with a cool day and then a really warm day. We ended up at the garden on one of those warm days. This prompted us to seek shade for the majority of the session. Luckily the Botanical Garden has amazing backgrounds for photos in both the sun and the shade. There is no shortage of places to take photos so we wandered around the garden to all the best spots. The ones that were not occupied by guests of course. While we walked around we talked about all the wedding details, what the family was up to this summer and many other topics. All the chit chat made the session seem like time was flying by. Their wedding day is going to be so much fun. I know they will be relaxed while enjoying the entire experience. Not only did they make the engagement session fun for the whole family I know they are going to have a very memorable wedding day as well. #ravettaphotography #stlphotographer #engagementphotos #parkphotos #botanicalgarden #summerphotos
